Three suspects have been taken into custody after a high-speed, multi-county pursuit on eastbound lanes of the 210 Freeway that involved both the Los Angeles Police Department and the California Highway Patrol.
The chase of the three residential burglary suspects was initiated by LAPD in the area of Sylmar just before 6 p.m. Tuesday night. Shortly before 6:30 p.m., CHP took over as the lead agency in the pursuit.
Sky5 caught up to the pursuit as it was in eastbound lanes of the 210 Freeway at Wheatland Avenue and continued through Pasadena, eventually, making its way into San Bernardino County.
Video shows the suspects, in a dark-colored Mercedes Benz, weaving across lanes of the busy freeway, narrowly avoiding a spike strip put out by CHP officers and hitting speeds of more than 100 miles per hour.
Just after 7 p.m., the driver transitioned to the southbound 215 Freeway, but several miles later, exited over to northbound lanes.
Moments after that, the driver exited at Highland in Muscoy where CHP deployed a PIT-maneuver that disabled the vehicle.
CHP officers called out each suspect one by one, including a male driver and passenger, as well as a woman in the backseat, Sky5’s Gil Leyvas reported.
All three were taken into custody, while CHP cleared the vehicle with a K-9 unit.
